About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

I'm On A Roll!

Here it is!  My Grand Illusion.
Bonnie Hunter's 2014 Mystery Quilt.
I was desperate to get it done (minus a hanging sleeve and label…I still need to do that) before this years mystery started and I am very happy to have succeeded.

 Finished size is about 76"x92".

I found a fabulous large print for the backside.

The pantograph I used to quilt it is called Circle of Life.

Lastly, the quilt has been Inspected (and approved) By Doug!

Mid October Posting

I'm absolutely amazed at how quickly time is going by….although some days seem to drag on forever.

This quilt was on the UFO pile for quite awhile….I wasn't sure how I was going to quilt it until just a couple months ago, but even knowing that I didn't seem to make the time to get it on the machine to get it done.

 The name of the quilt is Why Are We Going North….which comes from a story from a trip we took as a family years ago and will forever be embedded into out memories……
I saw a similar quilt on Pinterest and felt inspired to make it….

I used matchstick quilting on it which I did on my Handiquilter Avante.

I'm happy to have finished this one and get it off my UFO list.
